European Commission proposes ban on single-use plastic

by User Not Found | May 30, 2018
There will be an outright ban on products which have suitable and affordable alternatives, for example, cotton buds, plates and straws must be made from sustainable materials.
The European Commission has called on EU Parliament members to set rules for the reduction or ban of the 10 most common single-use plastic items found on European beaches.

The proposal includes different policy measures for different items, from bans and reductions to labelling and extended producer responsibility schemes. The aim is to reduce littering and environmental damage as well as to aid companies to become more competitive in the global marketplace when it comes to sustainable products.
